Fall/ Halloween Porch Decoration

A few months ago I gave our porch a cheap makeover. As you can see, I like to keep things pretty simple. I finally got around to throwing the flowers and herbs away this past weekend and decided to do a little Fall/Halloween decorating.

I left our chairs and cushions but added the $5 garage sale urns my sister(lucky for me)never picked up. I stuffed the bases with newspaper before adding kale for the pumpkins to rest on. The little lanterns are from our rear deck now that we've put the patio set away. I love repurposing things we already own.

As for the Halloween decs I again kept it simple. I have a box full of all sorts of colourful/neon/light up stuff from when the kids were young but decided against that and just added a few things. I also used my Cricut to make a haunted house for the door and some cut outs for the window.

So that's it. Not much to it but I'm happy to have a new look without spending a dime. Other than the produce of course.

Thanks for peeking!!
